Africa, Animals, and Bitch: Nassim B. 4 months ago
 I had a cat that used to sleep with me, and once she had given birth to 4 kittens, she
 brought them to me at night to bed, so I got scared to smash them by accident and went
 to sleep downstairs in the living room, after 10 mins she comes to sleep with me, then
 goes upstairs and bring her kittens one by one. can we call that trust?

how can ppl say cats are heartless tbh


I once stayed at a game reserve in South Africa, and they had three cheetahs – two males and one female. The boys stuck together (they were brothers), but female cheetahs are solitary, save for when they are raising cubs. Which is hard work for cheetahs, because they don’t/can’t den, she’s working constantly to protect/move her cubs, as well as feeding both them and herself.
Now, these cheetahs ARE in a private reserve, but they’re still essentially wild. But they are more or less accustomed to the presence of people. And this cheetah, Ketswiri, got very badly injured in her leg one time, which usually would be fatal to a cheetah. The staff at the reserve helped her. Another time, she was starving, and they provided her a fresh antelope carcass. And she remembered this, because the science officer was telling us how one time he was watching Ketswiri and her cubs, and she wandered over and dumped all her cubs at his feet, and walked off. Like “watch my kids, I need some me time.” And he was panicking like COME BACK I CAN’T BABYSIT YOUR KIDS WTF


Half of the comments are about cats giving birth on top of or next to their owners and I’m not crying at all

it’s so funny though because domesticated cats are aggressively social in raising their young so basically op’s cat was like bitch these are your kids too, where tf you think you’re going???

Cats, particularly housecats, are extremely social animals. Feral cats often form colonies and will co-parent each other’s kittens. And they get along with human beings so well in part because they share our ability to form close social ties across species lines. With dogs, with birds, with primates…with us. When cats come to live with us, we become part of their colony. Which is why cats will allow their humans to handle their kittens, and will often tolerate their humans’ children even if they would never put up with strangers.This is a species that chose us. That noticed that our habits attracted their prey, and that we, in turn, were drawn to them. That we would offer food, and warm, safe places to sleep, and plenty of help with grooming. There’s a very compelling argument that cats domesticated themselves, and to some degree, domesticated us.Cats are freaking amazing.
